AND NOW, another episode of the tiresome reality series in which people give meaningless apologies the day after saying something monumentally stupid. Today's Simpleton of Spin is Pat Garofalo, a Republican state representative from Minnesota, who yesterday "sincerely apologized" for a tweet he made Sunday night. "Let's be honest," Garofalo wrote on Sunday, "70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime.

Orlando's main man, Dwight Howard, spent last night at the team hotel, watching the Magic eliminate the 76ers from the playoffs. In his place, Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy started Marcin Gortat, who matches Howard in height at 6-foot-11 but lacks even a smidgen of Howard's athleticism. Also missing was Orlando's starting shooting guard, Courtney Lee, home in Orlando having surgery on a broken sinus. In his place, Van Gundy chose third-year player J.J. Redick, who presents an offensive perimeter threat, but is also a defensive liability.

Next stop for Allen Iverson . . . The Clippers? According to a report in yesterday's Los Angeles Times, the Clippers are in "very serious" talks with Iverson on a free-agent contract. In the past week, speculation was that Iverson had drawn interest from Memphis and Miami. Iverson is a four-time scoring champion who spent his first 10 1/2 seasons with the Sixers before being traded to Denver in December 2006. Last season, the Nuggets traded him to Detroit. He was limited to 57 games last season because of a bad back and averaged a career-low 17.4 points.

THERE'S NO telling how different the Washington Wizards would be if they had drafted Ricky Rubio when they had the chance. The winless team couldn't be any worse than it is now. Rubio and Kevin Love controlled the game in the 93-72 win for the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves yesterday, while the Wizards were showered with boos during a 12-point fourth quarter as they dropped to 0-8.

Arron Afflalo scored 30 points, Glen Davis added 23 points and 12 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic beat Dwight Howard in their first game against their longtime center, stunning the host Los Angeles Lakers, 113-103, on Sunday night. Howard had 21 points and 15 rebounds against his former team, but the rebuilding Magic rallied impressively for a 40-point fourth quarter for just their fourth win in 14 games, snapping a three-game skid. Orlando did it partly by intentionally fouling Howard, who went 9 for 21 at the line - including 7 for 14 in the fourth quarter.

KOBE BRYANT had 21 points and eight rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absences of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, and the loss of Pau Gasol, to beat the host Brooklyn Nets, 92-83, on Tuesday night. Antawn Jamison, starting for the suspended World Peace, made the go-ahead basket during a closing 14-3 run for the Lakers, who have won three straight and six of their last seven games. Howard missed his third consecutive game with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, and Gasol, his replacement, appeared to injure his right foot with a little more than 4 minutes remaining.

THE PHOENIX SUNS are again shooting down Steve Nash trade rumors. Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby emphatically said that the two-time league MVP isn't going anywhere, and he added center Marcin Gortat to the untouchable list. In an email yesterday, he repeated the statement he made earlier in the day to the Arizona Republic , saying, "We are not trading Marcin Gortat, period. End of sentence. We are not trading Steve Nash, period, exclamation point. " The latest denial came after ESPN reported that the Suns were in talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves over trading Nash for the No. 2 pick in today's draft.

NASCAR asked a federal judge yesterday to reverse his ruling that lifted driver Jeremy Mayfield's indefinite suspension for failing a random drug test. U.S. District Judge Graham Mullen's injunction Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C., cleared Mayfield to return to competition. Mayfield had been suspended May 9 for a positive drug test, and NASCAR has identified the substance as methamphetamine. Despite his reinstatement, Mayfield did not try to qualify for Saturday's race at Daytona International Speedway.

WHEN HE LEARNED before the game that Washington Wizards point guard John Wall was going to sit for that ever-popular reason of rest, Sixers coach Brett Brown turned his focus straight to Wizards center Marcin Gortat. No surprise there, as last week in Washington the 6-11, 240-pound center torched Brown's club for 23 points and 14 rebounds, making 10 of his 11 shots. What was surprising last night was how many times the 76ers defense managed to lose sight of the hulking center at the Wells Fargo Center, particularly in the first half.

WASHINGTON - While yesterday was a day of celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King and his dream, the 76ers' game against the Washington Wizards was a complete nightmare. There was no equality on the court after about the first 5 minutes as the Wizards (29-13) dominated in every aspect of the game, turning an 8-7 deficit into a 28-point lead in the first half en route to a 111-76 stomping. Washington was bigger, faster, quicker and stronger than the Sixers, and it didn't take too long for the Wizards to have their way. "[There were]
